Two Pandemics, One Election: Race, Identity, and the Future of Democracy

6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Framed against the backdrop of the Vice-Presidential debate, this conversation will consider the impact of how political candidates’ identities shape the conversation with an increasingly diverse electorate. This includes political agendas, media discourse, the emergence of new groups as political players, and new forms of backlash. This roundtable will pay special attention to intersections between racial, ethnic, immigrant, and gender identities. Register here.

In partnership with the Clark-Fox Policy Institute and the Center for Race, Ethnicity & Equity.
